Nellie McKay


This uke-slinging, piano-swinging avenger of the oppressed has never sounded better: Expect nuggets from throughout McKay’s remarkable oeuvre, which includes her Rachel Carson tribute “Silent Spring—It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature,” subversive political-pop parfaits (if you haven’t seen her taste-challenging “Caribbean Time” video, do so now), and random bursts of classic Americana from Dave Frishberg, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Neil Young, and Charles Mingus.
